Advocating for education—and educators

NWEA is driven to make enduring contributions to preK-12 education and help students, parents, educators, and policy makers use assessment as a tool to enhance teaching and learning.

 Our National Agenda guides our work to:

  • Invest in partnerships and key initiatives to advance the development of teachers and principals as professionals.
  • Lead a national discussion about the impact of valid growth measures on teaching and learning for all students.
  • Deepen education stakeholder understanding of assessment as a positive tool to influence the practice of teaching and learning.
  • Support states, districts, and schools in their selection of assessments for the right purpose by embracing multiple measures.
  • Promote school improvement through the use of assessments that provide school leaders with actionable insights.
